"Maybe we are not the best team as individuals, but we are a team, everyone helps and that is what symbolizes us", he noted, adding that Sweden and England have one thing in common.
England will continue in their quest to bring football home against Sweden, while the host nation will be praying Russian Federation can continue this wildly unexpected run.
